Absolutely. My opinion is that music is a large part of the equation, but it is not the entire deal.

I dont understand the scene from the early seventies, but I did see them live. So specifically I suppose, the fact that I did go at some point provides me the life experience to have the insight to tell you the band is best experienced live.

We do agree dude - you know that. My point had nothing to do with understanding or appreciation. It has specifically to do with life experience which in turn creates value. Our values make us who we are. That's what I believe.

Right on. For me the music is the only part of the equation, I understand how you and others have something else, but its not possible for it to be a part of my perspective. I am grateful for being born when I was, I missed the trip but its pretty awesome having all the time access to essentially every dead concert recorded, basically non existent until 2004 when archive came around.

I have no bones about that. I believe that your experiences seeing the dead live had a big impact. I think it would be interesting to develop an essay about the development of becoming a dead head for someone like yourself or others fortunate enough to have seen in comparison to younger folk like me or clementine and our path into becoming a dead head.
